University And College Physics

The links below lead to topics that are common to a university and college physics curriculum. The main focus here is on classical mechanics.



Below is a list of popular real-world applications that require a physics analysis and solution. The solutions use concepts commonly taught in physics courses in university and college. These solutions contain different physics concepts. For purposes of overall understanding, it is better to solve a few problems that involve numerous concepts than many little problems that each focus on a single concept. Quality over quantity applies well to solving physics problems. These solutions range from easy to challenging. Challenging solutions are denoted by *.
